MIEKE VAN DE LOUW – HEMIPLEGIA
“I’m Mieke van de Louw. Three years ago, in the beautiful month of May, something happened that nobody could be prepared for- I suffered a stroke. A stroke with left-sided paralysis, which suddenly prevented me from walking. During my rehabilitation, it became clear that I would not recover again. And so I had to make a choice: a scooter or a tricycle.
My husband encouraged me to choose a tricycle; the EasyLegs. It allows me to be very independent in life. I can do the shopping myself and go to my therapy. I feel wonderfully free and independent when I’m cycling. I can’t imagine living without it.”
